The first mention of Patent Leather came from Brussels, Belgium in the late 1700s, although it was at the time (please forgive us), not patented. From there, patents were eventually obtained in 1793 and 1805 for making patent leather, this time in Birmingham and Hackney Wick, England. Patent leather, it is widely agreed upon, owes much of its popularity to Seth Boyden. Seth Boyden, after obtaining a piece of patent leather from a German military hat did what anyone would do in the situation. Springing to action, he set up a shed at a Cast Iron Foundry and went to work on reverse engineering the process. Alas, Boyden never patented his lengthy process either, which included layers of linseed oil and days of baking the leathers and the irony continued.
The popularity of patent leather for use in formal dress grew from there. Today, we have our choice of patent products form belts, shoes, bags and more. Now in the wonderful throws of Summer, we are enjoying a surge of patent accessories and in honor of all those wonderful inventors that never held a patent, we invite you to pay homage by holding one of your very own!

Johnny Depp is always looking cool with the kids. On the list of our fashionable Dad’s, Mr. Depp goes from suits to jeans with some pretty consistent accessory choices. Hat, sunglasses and what we think completes the coolest of Dad looks, the beaded necklaces. We really like how he is rocking the camo as well.

Moody Fall Fashion 2014
Oh the mood swings of fashion. If you have, like us, run-through the run-way shows for fall 2014 you will inevitably notice the ambiguity of offerings striding down the catwalk. European style work boots flashing back to the Pacific Northwest in the early 90s and gorgeous ankle boots with peep toes or chic zippers. Chunky knit scarves and soft gauzy feminine dresses with lighter than air ruffles.
But we are loving it. What could be better than to have your pick of so many fabulous styles? If designers are saying ‘the choice is yours’ this season, then fashion is all the better for it and so are we. So in the spirit of contrast and ambiguity, we have picked a few Dasein bags that we think represent the best of our opposites. Enjoy!
